Alexander Færøy

My name is Alexander Færøy, I am a hacker from Copenhagen in Denmark.

I am currently working as a Core Developer on the network team at The Tor Project. Our team is responsible for the development of the “core” Tor application and ensuring that the Tor network itself remains in a healthy state. My current focus is on performance optimizations and optimizing Tor for high latency mobile environments in areas of the world with relatively poor network connectivity.

My personal interests includes the development of free & open source software, computer security, hardening of both software, firmware & hardware, cryptography, privacy enhancing technologies, network protocols, distributed systems, software design, and programming languages.

I am not particularly good at keeping this site up-to-date, but you should be able to find information on how to contact me, and read various articles I have written.
